A neuroscience lab in the Department of Anatomy at Howard University is actively looking for a postdoctoral scientist to join and work on NIH-funded projects targeting neural circuit mechanisms underlying olfactory processing and neuromodulation of behaviors in health and neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer’s disease. We achieve our scientific goals by taking advantage of cutting-edge technologies including optogenetics and chemogenetics integrated with in vitro and in vivo single cell electrophysiology, in vivo calcium imaging, or behavioral tests to analyze functional mechanisms, neuroanatomy and immunohistochemistry combined with confocal microscopy to decipher organizational principles, etc.
Doctoral degree in neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, neuroscience, or related fields with work experience in electrophysiology, calcium imaging, behavioral tests, and with willingness to learn new technologies.
Knowledge and/or experience in in vivo or in vitro electrophysiology, calcium imaging, and/or behavioral tests, immunohistochemistry, or other research techniques related to our projects.
Ability to present experimental findings orally at scientific meetings.
Experience in writing abstracts & manuscripts of scientific papers.
Experience in performing data analysis of experimental results.
Ability to establish and maintain effective and harmonious work relations with faculty, staff, students and customers.
